Rural Living

From farmhouse to country retreat, building a home on acreage or a large rural allotment where your nearest neighbour is a mile away is a dream come true. 

While everyone’s tastes are different, people looking to build on a larger property often surround themselves with lifestyle features such as a swimming pool, a tennis court or equestrian facilities, or a machinery shed to run a hobby farm with a level of sustainability that extends the use of the property even further.

From traditional farmhouse designs that capture the classic features of a true Australian homestead with open spaces, high ceilings and traditional verandahs to more contemporary low maintenance solutions, Comdain Homes has been custom designing and building family homes on Melbourne’s outskirts for more than 30 years.

The design brief for a country home should consider building on the block to take full advantage of the terrain and views, with consideration to future use of the property, including accessing various outdoor areas and activities such as sheds, out houses and rain water tanks to fully maximise the development potential of the land. Opportunities such as insulation and solar control are critical and have great implications to the comfort and wellbeing inside the home, as well as the access to power, power generation and water harvesting.

Our experienced award winning team design every home to be unique from the ground up and custom built to the highest quality, reflecting your personal needs and the unique character of you block of land.

Working closely with each client our team create a home that is exactly right for you. Using natural materials and the very latest innovations, hand crafted finishes and quality fittings, we create a home that is uniquely yours.
